It's interesting to see the 60's from the point of a shock video. Beautiful cars and women with some strange hairdos. Not bad quality either.

There seems to be no renewal for this film at the US Copyright Office. Enjoy the boobies, and ignore the whining of religious nuts. Five stars just to offset the previous poster.

Subject: The lost Doris Wishman films
Does anyone really know which of the DW films have copyright or not?

The color, the cars and the beatnik jazz flute music are tooo much!

I think they are great.

Something Weird Video has a complete collection of Wishman Films curiously all uniformly priced which means to me that their vault collection should be free like She has an entry at wikipedia as well.

Cudos to for this release.

I don't consider this cheesecake, to me it wasn't intended to be titillating. Since it was made at the beginning of the sexploitation era, it shows a lot of breasts but no crotch shots.

I loved how the first two nudists introduced were Frank and Annette, I assumed they were making fun of the beach movies.

And those hairdos, women wouldn't go in the water because they didn't want to ruin their plastic sprayed do.

About the time this came out me & some friends found some Swedish nudist magazines someone had thrown out in a park. As a kid we thought it was an accident, but as an adult I wonder why the were left there... Those magazines only showed the nudist lifestyle, no sex. They weren't as titillating to the 10yo me as they were eye-opneing that people lived a completely different life style from what I saw on TV. I thought they were real...

This is a movie I have not seen yet and am looking forward to. I am a fan of sexploitation films, which by definition were films that showed cheesecake while pretending to be about something else. I am familiar with some of her mid-to-late sixties films and the famous Chesty Morgan films of the seventies, starring a woman whose breasts were as oversized as her fashion sense was dowdy. Doris Wishman freely admitted in interviews that she went into filmmaking without previous production experience and next to no knowledge of what she was doing. She was also mechanically inept to boot and left the camera operation and the editing to the people on her staff. This led to a style unlike just about any other director who ever made a film: a real original. Interested persons should check out Bad Girls Go To Hell, My Brother's Wife, and Indecent Desires for strange stories, made strangely, and with some really nice looking sixties sex starlets like Gigi Darlene, June Roberts, and Darlene Bennett. Sorry for the off-topic.

I found the point of view here to be more than a little ambiguous. The film seems to be advocating the nudist lifestyle, but the music and models are pure cheesecake! Only tits and butts are shown (though most of those are quite nice), so may be a bit disappointing for female or gay voyeurs. As in all bad movies, there are stretches of boredom in between the fun parts, but on the whole very enjoyable as a time capsule. C'mon, Zelda, get your clothes off!

The aspect is wrong. Set it at 4x3 on your vlc or other player.
It is a nice 1961 movie.
Unfortunately I lost all my memories of the summer of 1960 due to circumstances of my life that removed portions of my memory, something like that genius scientist on the Fringe TV show. I wonder where they got the idea for that show?
Anyway, I guess my appreciation of this time machine back to the 60’s may exceed others approval for that reason.
I also have a healthy fascination for the naked female form.
There are quite a few sexy young nude females to watch in prolonged bare skin scenes and it has a bit of a story too.
I gave it a high rating so people looking for top rated movies wouldn't miss this one.
